Primary School Teaching Resource: The Threat of Antarctic Tourism
Degree GrantorUniversity of Canterbury
Degree LevelPostgraduate Certificate
Degree NamePostgraduate Certificate in Antarctic Studies
I have designed a series of five series to teach students about the possible impacts of tourism to Antarctic animals. The series have worksheets and PPTs attached to them to compliment the suggested activities and discussions. The series has been designed to complement the New Zealand Curriculum, to fit its achievement objectives, key competencies and effective pedagogies practices. I have tried to keep it as adaptable as possible, so that teachers can change it to suit the need of their class. I have begun to distribute it to know colleges and schools who have expressed interest in it. I was unable to upload it to the learnz site, as I have not received a New Zealand Registration number, but plan to do so once I receive one. I have created my own website where the resources can be downloaded by the public, at http://teacherknott.weebly.com/antarctica-teaching-resources.html. This site will be continually updated throughout my professional career. I am also working out how to make the site more easily searchable through Google. Once the unit has been revised I will allow it to be uploaded to the Antarctic New Zealand website for public use.
